    TOGAF EA Software - what to look for


We have been involved with enterprise architecture using TOGAF for more than 10 years. We also have worked with many different TOGAF software vendors in the past and implemented those different TOGAF software products. I want to share a few bullets below that eventually led to our development of a complete new TOGAF software solution: eacomposer.com.

We believe:
-A software solution should make it easier to adopt the TOGAF framework.
-A software solution should support the entire process and all artifacts.
-A software solution should be simple and easy to use and NOT required weeks of training
-A software solution should be built on a cloud & subscription based approach.
-A software solution should be 100% web based, no client installs, no server installs, no activeX components in the browsers just pure HTML5.
-A software solution should have an integrated modeling tool that is capable of producing business friendly diagrams.

When looking at market offerings you will notice that no other vendor or product meets these criteria.

So we started the journey of developing a brand new, built from scratch, as a pure web based, 100% TOGAF aligned TOGAF software solution. It has taken more than a year of development to put it all together and prepare for our first public release in October 2015. We still have lots of other product ideas for the future, rest assure.

Our TOGAF software:
-Makes it easier to adopt the TOGAF framework.
-Supports all TOGAF core processes and artifacts.
-Is cloud subscription based, no large capital investment needed.
-Is 100% web based, no installs, automatic updates, pure HTML5
-Pure web based visual modeller capable of producing Visio level diagrams.

We encourage you to please give our TOGAF software solution a try, you will not regret it, there is no risk and it will increase you knowledge & understanding of TOGAF. Also a great help how to practically apply this to your organization and implementation.

Thanks,
Daniel
